When my future son in law first visited us in the Pocono Mountains he did not have his now world famous beard. His beard has absolutely nothing to do with this picture. We took him and my daughter to Grey Towers in Milford Pennsylvania. The famous house of Gifford Pinchot.
There had been heavy rain the night before and I took this picture of tree reflections in a small pond. I didn’t realize Owen was even in the picture. My recent image, Upside Down in Mexico has caused me to revisit old pictures of reflections. This one takes on a surrealistic feel when turned upside down and cropped.
A family watching the sunset over Cancún in the province of Quinatara Roo, Mexico. Every night is a little different on the blue docks of of the lagoon where people congregate to eat, drink and watch the light show. They are on an overhead walkway and the shot is taken from a bridge below.
I like images that are not always what they first appear to be. It looks as if this family is upset because the fountain was spitting at them. Of course that is not the case. I am sure it is also not called The Spitting Fountain of Munich
My Mom passed away a few years ago. I still think of calling her on Sunday mornings and especially want to call her today. She was a good soul. She raised me right and lived to the ripe old age of 94 which I hope to beat! To all you Moms, I wish you a happy day. May the children in your life honor and respect you and have the happiest day, doing whatever it is YOU want to do.
I can’t think of this holiday without thinking of my Daughter who was just one month old at her first Thanksgiving. This is an old picture of her, my Mom and my lovely wife in State College Pennsylvania thirty one years ago. The turkey was bigger than she was. Have a great holiday!
Earlier this week I posted a portrait My Favorite Model, who just happens to be my wife of 42 years so I have taken a lot of pictures of her in the different stages of her life. Here are a couple of snapshots from the old days. She still has the ability to look through the lens rather than at the lens so at some point I will have to do a retrospective of her look through five decades.These images are not for sale.
I have published a number of images of fashion models that I worked for back in the day however have never posted any images of my favorite model. My wife, now of 42 years was always my best model. She had the ability to look through the lens rather than at the lens. Most good models have this skill but most of them are professionals and she was not but she did have the skill and appearance to pursue that career had she wanted to. In any case, this is a portrait I took of her in 1977 and it is still one of my favorites. This image is not for sale.
